Core Values

These values are the bedrock upon which we serve.

While there are many fundamental values upon which the success and legacy of EO Johnson has been built there are four, in particular, that we consider to be our Cornerstone Core Values.

These values are the bedrock upon which we serve each other, our customers, and communities. They govern our personal relationships, guide our decision-making, and articulate what we stand for.


Our four Cornerstone Core Values are:

1. We are Caring 

To us, this means we genuinely care about each other, our customers, and our vendors. Like a family, we celebrate our successes and support each other with compassion in times of challenge. We believe in contributing our time and resources to the communities we are privileged to do business and raise our families in. We give each other the benefit of the doubt and believe in the importance of honesty, integrity, and reliability.

2. Trustworthy

We have invested decades building our reputation of being Trustworthy. We believe in always doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. We have learned to Trust and be Trusted. As EO Johnson was fond of saying, "Do the right things and the right things will happen."

3. Customer Vision

To us Customer Vision means seeing the business through the customer's eyes and responding to each customer as a team to exceed their expectations. EO Johnson passionately believed in this founding principle of Customer Vision and still today, every employee at every level, serves our customers and each other with this in mind.

4. Stability 

Stability results from the responsibility we have accepted and entrusted to one another, our customers and our community. We take pride in our rich history. We make decisions with our long term in mind and recognize the stewardship of precious financial and human resources that contribute to this Stability.
